I am not ALLOWED to ever find the location of the firefox address or navigation bar. The "people" of firefox use these two names all over this site, and not once will anyone tell me the location, or how they may be accessed. If the most basic data is EXCLUDED, because EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS EVERYTHING ABOUT FIREFOX, how is the new user to find anything? I have spent 7 hours on your website, because this browser idles at almost a gig of RAM on the browser homepage, I researched and found out I'm supposed use the "navigation bar" unfortunately someone forgot include it's location. It's great that you include the data that the "minimize memory usage" button exists as a tool, BUT WHERE IN THE HELL WAS IT HIDDEN? I have never experienced a product that intentionally excludes instructions, and there is no way to get any help or service, and I'm left with this poor excuse for customer service with leaving questions that will never be answered. Thanking you in advance for NO HELP OR SERVICE, James Erb(email address).

When I start typing in the address bar I get a list of suggestions. Some of them have a star on the left and some don't. I can delete the ones that don't (Shift - Delete). But I can't delete the ones with the star. What is the star for and how can I delete it?

IS there a way to disable Switch to Tab PERMANENTLY? IT would be SLIGHTLY less annoying if it REFRESHED the old tab when it brought you to it. But for some really dumb reason, it doesn't. I don't want to have to remember to press Alt every time because I literally can't think of a single time I would ever want it.

Firefox MacOS : How to "unstick" Firefox from a space ?

Hello, Whenever I try to open Firefox, it shows up rapidly on the current space but then disappears to move to the space where it has been closed the last time I used it.… (read more)

Hello,

Whenever I try to open Firefox, it shows up rapidly on the current space but then disappears to move to the space where it has been closed the last time I used it.

For example : I have 3 spaces. I am on space 2 with Firefox open, I close it. I go back on space 1, open Firefox -> it will open on space 1 and then immediately the window will disappear to appear in the space 2. If I move Firefox to space 3, and close it (CMD+Q), the next time I'll launch it, the window will appear in space 3 no matter from which space I launch it.

Not my native language I hope I've been clear enough sorry.

And of course, when I right click Firefox on the dock, under Options, the value of "Assigned To" is "None". (already tried to assign it to a space then go back to none but it doesn't work).

This behaviour only concerns Firefox. All others apps behave like it should : open in the space I'm in.. If you have any idea..

My current macOS version is : macOS Catalina 10.15.4 Firefox version is : 75.0 Attached: a screenshot of my mission control settings (which are not the problem I think but just in case)

Thanks and have a nice day,

Amine
